The Work They Have At Heart
In 1957, seven Brisbane Sisters of Mercy responded to need in Papua New Guinea and began establishing schools, teacher training and health services.
Once these services were well established the Sisters supported localisation with the emphasis to educate and empower the locals to take on their positions as teachers and nurses. The Sisters began to serve in support roles and continued their focus on enabling women to become leaders.
This work continues in Papua New Guinea today through the first and second generations who were supported by the Sisters.
